How Does Getting a Trade-In Value Work?

You may be wondering how the process of selling or trading in your vehicle to a dealership works. At Newton Nissan South, we utilize the accredited TradePending software used by thousands of dealerships across the country. Your trade-in is valued using the most current market data. It’s based on the information you provide about your car’s make, model, VIN, mileage, and condition. The estimated value reflects what buyers have paid for similar vehicles to ensure you receive the best and most fair price for your trade-in vehicle. To start the process, you can use the portal on our website under the tab “Value Your Trade” or, if you prefer, do it in person at our dealership in Shelbyville. Since the valuations are available for you to research and compare, you know you’re getting the best possible deal.

Who Do We Use to Value Your Trade Online?

To get the best possible trade-in value for your vehicle, we utilize the trusted brand TradePending. TradePending is a software company that calculates value based on real-world figures and comparable sales data that are transparent and easy to understand. Created to help everyday consumers get honest numbers, TradePending relies on transparency, simplicity, and branding to get you reliable data when you are ready to sell your vehicle. The data mined by TradePending is accessible and visible to any user as they research values, taking the guesswork out of pricing your trade-in. Unfortunately, as a whole, transparency is not yet a standard practice in the automotive industry, making TradePending an innovator in the field.

You may have heard of Kelley Blue Book (KBB), an online database that focuses on “book values” for vehicles that advertises getting you an accurate value assessment in a short period of time. The difference between TradePending and KBB is that TradePending allows you to view the data that determines the value; KBB does not share this same access to the sourced data. It’s this transparent element that lands TradePending ahead of the pack. Since this background data is forming the valuation, TradePending thought it crucial to allow consumers to review it for themselves.

Big decisions are being made based on data provided by both of these companies; that’s why allowing consumers to have all the relevant information is critical and gives TradePending a competitive advantage. With TradePending, every valuation comes with a SNAPShot report: an easy-to-use readable report based on over 8 million listings, refreshed daily. Dealerships know the value of making their customers feel like the trade-in process is being handled with integrity, and Newton Nissan South provides the most comprehensive data available.

What Happens When You Trade In Your Vehicle?

There are a few things to consider when selling or trading in your current vehicle. Trading in your current vehicle will help you get a better deal on a new car. The process is made simpler because you know that Newton Nissan South wants to buy your old vehicle, saving you time and energy trying to sell it yourself. When you sell or trade in your vehicle with us, you don’t have to worry about advertising, screening potential buyers, going back and forth on negotiations, and getting paid. We handle everything from beginning to end and create a hassle-free experience for our customers. Once your trade is complete, you either get paid for your old vehicle or put the money towards your next purchase. If you have an existing loan on the vehicle you are trading in, we will help you determine the payoff demand on your current loan and help facilitate paying off the remaining balance, thus closing the transaction.

In order to prepare for selling or trading in your current vehicle, you’ll want to take a few steps to simplify the process. Have the title paperwork ready to bring in with your vehicle, as it provides us with proof of ownership and is required by the state to transfer the title over to Newton Nissan South. If you have financing, bring your loan number or payoff demand if you have it, so we can access what is left on your balance to pay off with the sale of your car. Any repair or maintenance records would also be helpful.

If you don’t have these readily available, we can order a CARFAX report which will detail your vehicle’s history of any accidents, maintenance, repairs, and an outline of your vehicle’s features. When using the TradePending software to reach a value, we will need your car’s vehicle identification number (VIN). The VIN is a unique serial number linked to your car and helps us streamline the process. Think of it as a social security number for your car. Remove any personal belongings you may have in the trunk, center console, glove compartment, or any other storage space in your car. Once all of that is complete, you are ready to proceed with the sale or trade-in.
